Make a one-time or monthly donation

Each year, the demand for our services grows. Last year, we treated 1,670 wild animals and helped hundreds more by assisting members of the public with wildlife-related issues; educating Albertans about natural wildlife behaviours, and how best to live alongside our wildlife. We also answered more than 5,000 wildlife related calls, providing assistance and information to support the wellbeing, and, in many cases, the survival, of animals. As a charitable organization, we rely solely on our own fundraising to operate.

Gulliver

Gulliver, or Gully as we call him, is a striped skunk and is one of our education ambassador animals at AIWC. Gully was brought to AIWC almost 3 years ago after being found in Calgary, crying underneath a tree outside a yoga studio. From the moment of his admission, it was clear how used to humans he was. We don't know what happened to Gully before he came to us, but we do know that because of his friendliness to humans, he wasn't a good candidate to be released into the wild. AIWC will be Gully's home for the rest of his life and he lives happily with us at the centre. He will often make appearances at AIWC wildlife education programs.

Griffin

Griffin is a dark phase red-tailed hawk that was admitted to AIWC as a fledging in 2013 after being hit by a car. Unfortunately, Griffin suffered from a large amount of head trauma and as a result he is now blind in his right eye. Due to this, he was no longer a good candidate to be released into the wild, and it was also noted early on that he was very passive and did not stress easily, which is unusual for wild animals. After intensive care showed that Griffin would never regain sight in his right eye, AIWC began testing his suitability as an education ambassador. He has been an ambassador since January 2014 and will make appearances at AIWC education programs.
